Lottery Singapore is one of the most popular ways to win big money in the city. You can play games like 4D, Toto, and Singapore Sweep for a few dollars a pop, but the winnings are quite impressive. The jackpot prizes for these games often exceed a million dollars. The rules for each game vary slightly, but the general process is the same.
The alleged rightful winner in this story wrote that she used to bet on the 4D lottery regularly, but missed out on one day. She then asked a friend to place a bet on her behalf, and the result was astounding. She claimed that she won over S$200,000 in total, which is a massive amount of money for a single woman who makes about S$2,000 a month. She was overjoyed to have finally made some money, and she promised her colleagues that she would buy them dinner.
However, she never actually received her prize money. She was reportedly at a loss to explain the situation to her colleagues, and they ended up deciding to help her out. They shared the story in a closed Facebook group as a cautionary tale for others.
TOTO (pronounced tay-toh) is a legal form of lottery sold in Singapore by the state-owned Singapore Pools. The game was established in 1968 and is a lawful form of gambling under Singapore law. The game has a snowball effect that distributes the jackpot to a lower tier in the event that no winner is found for the top prize.
